After a hot start through the first 15 games of the season, the Cincinnati Reds are now fighting to play .500 baseball in the middle of June. Cincinnati sits in fourth place in the NL Central division with an overall record of 35-36. Naturally, it doesn't help the cause when two of your five starting pitchers find themselves on the injured list.

But, the Reds got some good news on Tuesday in regard to starting pitcher Sonny Gray's injury update. Not only was Gray on the field performing drills this morning, but it was reported he'll be making a rehab start for the Reds Triple-A affiliate on Thursday.

Sonny Gray Injury Update

Gray has seemed to revitalize his career in Cincinnati after a tough 1.5 years with the New York Yankees. New York dealt Gray to the Reds in 2019 and the 31-year-old right-hander immediately earned an All-Star appearance the following year after going 11-8 with a 2.87 ERA.

This season, Gray owns a respectable 3.42 ERA in 10 starts and 50.0 innings pitched. Gray had been dealing with a right groin strain and made his last start on June 8th. If all goes well, Gray could be penciled into his next turn in the rotation before the end of the month (June 29th against the San Diego Padres).

Currently, the Reds own just +6500 odds to win the World Series, according to the latest MLB odds on FanDuel Sportsbook.
